Sunday Terminology: Scholasticism


Scholasticism. The medieval philosophical and theological tradition in which Greek philosophy was synthesized with the Bible and teachings of the church fathers. Leading figures included *Anselm, Thomas *Aquinas, John *Duns Scotus and William of *Ockham. In the period after the Reformation a number of theologians known as Protestant scholastics attempted to systematize Lutheran and Calvinist thought in ways that resembled the work of the medieval Scholastics in both style and content.[1]
